The Carly Solution

Carly Fiorina as Cruz's VP choice?  Really?

I think if we'd gone back to 1 January of this year and stated that the VP was going to be Carly.....half of the Cruz voters would have backed up.....done some more calculating.....and eventually thirty-percent of the Cruz crowd would have shifted to someone else.

Carly is the one with a judgement issue (the maturity of a 15-year-old girl).  Carly is the one with leadership issues demonstrated while a CEO.  Carly is the one who makes some rash statements that infuriate the general public.

There are ten primaries left at this point.  The two key ones?  California and New Jersey.

Did Ted improve any of his odds in the ten states left?  Maybe in California....he bumped it up another five points.  Will this force Donald to pick a VP candidate now?  Maybe.

Personally, I can't think of a single occasion over the past hundred years where someone did something like this.  But that's how crazy the 2016 primary period has become.
